Brad and Angelina Marriage, Wedding Venue Photos – we all guessed it might happen as it was confirmed today that Brad and Angelina got married last weekend in a quiet private ceremony at their massive estate in the South of France.
We have had rumours almost monthly concerning a wedding date for the most powerful Hollywood couple since they announced their engagement back in April 2012.
The couple quite rightly want to guard not only their own privacy but also that of their 6 children. Their home is the Chateau Miraval which is located in the beautiful Provencal countryside near the town of Correns. It is a stunning 1000-acre estate which now has its own range of top quality wines. Their Chateau Miraval Rosé 2012 was ranked 84 in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year making it the top-ranked rosé wine of that year.
Their wines are all cultivated organically without the use of any pesticides or chemicals. Once they are ready to be harvested all the estate’s grapes are hand-picked and hand-sorted.
As you would expect of such a superb estate it has its own private chapel and it is their that the couple are said to have got married with their 6 children all taking a part in the ceremony. Angelina has spoken before on the topic of their wedding saying that it is the children who were most keen on it taking place and how they were looking to incorporate traditions from their adopted childrens’ countries of birth into the ceremony.
Although Brad, Angelina and their children have lived at the Chateau Miraval since 2008, they didn’t actually buy the property until 2012 when they are believed to have paid around $60m. The chateau was previously owned by French jazz pianist and composer Jacques Loussier. The estate has been used in the past by a number of famous musicians to record albums including Sting, Pink Floyd and Sade.
It is the 2nd marriage for 50-year old Brad Pitt, who was previously married to Friends actress Jennifer Aniston, and the 3rd marriage for 30-year old Angelina Jolie, whose first husbands were Elementary star Jonny Lee Miller and Sling Blade and Monster’s Ball actor Billy Bob Thornton.
Brad and Angelina have been together since they first met on the set of their movie Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005.
The weekend wedding ceremony was conducted by a judge who flew in from California, where the couple had arranged their marriage licence.
